Costs summary (£ per KW):

| Overall | Low | High  |
| Capital | 677 | 3,936 |

h2 Current Calculator assumptions

* Lifetime =  20 years
* Conversion efficiency = 50%
* Electricity consumption (to run pump) = 7% of heat supplied

h2 Investment Cost sources

* High cost = Micro Solar Thermal (non-south facing), 60% above reference from ESME, Availability = 7.5%, Life = 20yrs
* Low cost = Micro Solar Thermal (south facing), -40% from reference from ESME, Availability = 7.5%, Life = 20yrs
